How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character by Paul Tough who makes the case that it is not cognitive skills which are most critical to success in school and life but noncognitive skills like persistence, curiosity, conscientiousness, self-control, and self confidence which matter. Further, character stems from encountering and overcoming failure from which rich kids are sheltered, and for poor kids means there is no cushion. #Children #Success #Paul_Tough

This could possibly be the best book ever…

Ummm....Yes :) Wow. what a crazy, crazy book. Maybe it could be custom made, so you'd specify your personality and put some stories about yourself and then, MAGIC would happen. But maybe you'd get a friend to do it, so you wouldn't know about it. *sigh*
